Spider Valve MkII 212 is poised to become the workhorse amp for all kinds of pro players. Its seamless integration into MIDI rigs allows for quick changes to all front-panel controls, easy synching of your time-based effects (to themselves and to your drummer’s click-track) as well as other time- and energy-saving features.
Plus, two output modes deliver easy and effective solutions for direct-recording and gigging.

Studio Mode bypasses the tubes to send the platinum-album Line 6 modeling only.

Performance Mode captures signal interaction between tubes and modeling
Studio Mode provides a direct signal that captures the modeling only
Brawny Tube Tone
Many so-called tube amps employ low-voltage marketing
tubes to add authenticity to their tube amp
claim. Spider Valve MkII 212 boasts bona fide Bogner-designed preamp and power amp sections that run at lethal voltages (about 300 volts and 450 volts, respectively) to produce exceptional depth, tonal coloration and richness.
The signal from the Line 6 front-end flows into the pair of 12AX7 preamp tubes to produce creamy, cascading distortions and enriched tube harmonics. The perfectly matched pair of 6L6 power tubes then drives the Celestion Vintage 30 speakers to provide unprecedented sonic impact.
- Line 6 tonal flexibility, deep editing and world-class modeling
- Bogner-designed preamp and power amp sections
- Pair of 12AX7 preamp tubes; matched pair of 6L6 power tubes
After being poured from the 12-inch Celestion Vintage 30 speakers, your tone soaks up the spanky thump of the tuned three-quarter closed-back cabinet. The result is a tight low-end punch for a truly exceptional feel.
